Looks like another half-ass attempt which, sorry to say, isn't going to cut it.
You're probably right about that. I haven't fully committed to the idea at this point. It seems like I always go into training with a serious approach, but then life happens and I get off track way before I actually get into good shape. A year or so ago I got into 57-58 shape for 400m before falling off the wagon - still a good 10 seconds off my college form. I think going under 55 wasn't too far off, but from there gains would have been much more difficult I'm sure, and would have required more dedication.
I'd like to go into things this time around with more commitment, but that's easier said than done. I think the main problem has been trying to do things on my own with no training partners. No accountability. There are plenty of distance training groups around these parts. Not many sprint oriented groups nearby that I know of.
